Nick and Russell team up once again to deliver a course that gives all participants a chance to further develop the technical and tactical awareness of Rugby Sevens. They will focus on the core skill development for both forms of the game such as catching & passing, running lines, offloading, tackling and the breakdown area. As part of the wider education we will emphasise personal qualities of LEADERSHIP, CREATIVITY, RESILIENCE and INDEPENDENT THINKING. We passionately believe that these values alongside a good team ethic form the nucleus of all successful athletes.
This course is all about having fun, personal development and unlocking the mind-set. Through Nick and Russell’s infectious personalities they build a strong and positive rapport with the whole group throughout the course.
When it comes to rugby 7s Sedbergh School has earned national recognition having won the U16 and U18 Rosslyn Park National Sevens multiple times most recently in March 2018. Our School coaches feature throughout the week to offer their expertise in support of Nick and Russell.
